First, I just wanna clarify that the word 'snot' in the U.S., which is where I live, is also used as slang just as 'snob' would be used. When creating this blog, I really didn't think that I would have people from around the world looking at my blog, so I didn't take this into consideration that people of other cultures wouldn't understand this to be slang for "someone who is stuck up (or someone that thinks they are better then others)." On that topic, I just wanna say I am truly humbled and so thankful for all of the people that visit my site and who support me in sharing one of my true joys in life, cooking.

So, as I got older secretly me and my mom started critiquing other peoples food. This sound more harsh then it really is, and it's something that everyone does, but we are just way more picky about it. It's mostly that, I work hard to keep in shape so I don't wanna waste my calories on a dessert that is just "ok". So for example, me, my mom and my other three sisters all go to a baby shower, and as everyone knows (at least in the U.S.) a baby shower is always adorned with tons of goodies. So my mom goes and gets her plate, loads up and sits down and starts to sample. If there is other people around, then I know what I wanna get because anything my mom doesn't like, or I should say anything she thinks is just ok, she will take a bite and leave it and will keep munching on the "amazing" desserts. If no one is around, usually I'll ask her, "So is it good?" My mom with a shrug, "Yeah, it's good." Me, "But is it our standard of 'good'?" Then she'll either point out the ones she really likes or she'll just smile and say no. That's when we just had to laugh at ourselves and now lovingly call each other Food Snots.

So I hope this clears up some of the misunderstanding behind the name I chose I why I chose it and not something else. I hope everyone has a good week!! And thanks for reading!!
